Episode Narrative A stalled cold front over the Mississippi Valley spawned thunderstorms producing heavy rain from northern Mississippi through middle Tennessee and central Kentucky into southern Indiana. With little movement of the front, training of storms produced record or near-record 2-day rainfall totals from 8 to 10+ inches in many locations across central Kentucky. Major flooding occurred in at least 40 Kentucky counties, washing out roads and inundating municipal water treatment plants. Four lives were lost in Kentucky - three in vehicles and one in a home, where the resident was apparently electrocuted in high water. Over the following days, most area rivers were in flood, including some flooding along the main stem of the Ohio River.
Event Narrative Stoner Creek at Paris crested around 26.2 feet at noon EST on May 3. Flood stage at Paris is 18 feet. Major flooding occurs at this level, with water entering homes and businesses.
